If I order SkyHAWK sunglasses from compactyacht.com, who ships them and how long will they take to arrive? The folks behind compactyachts.com have been distributors for the SkyHAWK line (which we think is the finest pair of yachting sunglasses made today, regardless of price) and a couple others (we sell the Nero line of bicycling glasses and Sharpshooter shooting glasses as well) for more than 20 years. Your order is packaged and shipped from our California headquarters, usually the same or next day (M-F) and should arrive to you within a week … less if you’re west of the Rockies.

Where’s the “BOATS” page? – In our ongoing quest to streamline the site, the “Boats” page has been integrated in the “Links” page (since links to the builders are featured). Look there and you’ll find a partial list of the boats we’ve reviewed.

Didn’t compactyachts.com originally feature yachts to 32 feet? Yes. As we got into the type of boat we were featuring, we realized that most of the boats in which our readers would have an interest (largely trailerable yachts) would have to be 30-feet or shorter, so we’ve adjusted our length parameters to “30-foot or shorter yachts”.
